FC Cornerstone visit Zimbabwe

FC Cornerstone recently visited Zimbabwe and whilst they were on their trip they donated a number of kits to various different destinations.  The majority of the kit was donated to the Kadoma Youth football academy as well as 2 schools in the township of Rimuka.

The kit in demand was that of Liverpool FC, these were shared between the Tariro childrens home  and the Moses Chunga academy.  Whilst the kit of FC United of Manchester found a new home with the Moses Chunga academy as well.  A home was even found for a signed Norway ladies international shirt for a female football enthusiast.  Below is some pictures of the trip and the happy new owners of some top class kit.

Good luck from everyone at KitAid Jason in braving the arctic conditions and look forward to hearing all about it once completed.

New KitAid Drop Boxes

We are very grateful to Simon Wheeler from Stylographics in Watford, for designing and producing our very first KitAid drop box.

Simon heard about our work and decided to offer his help, which we are extremely grateful for.  We have always struggled to provide professional looking collection boxes and these are fantastic.  We collected the very first box yesterday and look forward to receiving a few more over the coming weeks.

Stylographics have done us proud and we recommend them for all of your business needs!!!
